This brief essay on theory in educational administration examines the state of the art in general terms. No effort is made to provide a comprehensive or substantive review of theories or the research associated with them, although some attention is given to those topics. The essay's major concerns are with the particulars of theory development and use in educational administration, the problems of theory development in educational administration, and some strategies of theory development.
